We had to endure waking up early in the morning to enjoy the rest of the day. After we had breakfast at 6:30 am, we had to get ready for the 1.5 hour drive to Balanan Lake.


We were greeted by this beautiful road bridge after we entered the resort’s premises.

It had beautiful man-made step falls linking the river so that it would continuously fall from this mountainous terrain to the plains.

We rented “bankas” (small boat) so that we could go to the other side of the lake.

We were told that the depth of this lake is about 70ft -100ft.

After 30 minuits of boat riding, we arrived at the other side of the lake. We hiked for about 15 minuites to arrive at the waterfalls. I took a picture of some wildlife animals I found interesting while we hiked:

This is a “wild boar.” I don’t know if you should still call it “wild” though because it’s already in captive. If you don’t know what it is it’s kind of sort of like a crazy, black-colored pig which is much more aggressive than the normal pig and can even aggressively bite human beings if provoked.

The water spider and it’s shadow.

I don’t know if this is a worm or a snake. But, if anyone of you recognizes what it is, please let me know.

I failed to ask our local tour guides what this waterfall is called. Its top-flat rock formation is a beauty.

And of course, I have more creative shots. This lake also has the lots and lots of flowers.

I had a hard time capturing this because I’m afraid that the bee might sting me.
